3.5 out of 5 Stars!
Whenever I’m in the mood for some rather underground, “semi-hippy/trippy” Psychedelic Hard Rock, especially music with an “attitude,” I find myself turning often to Pink Fairies.
The three albums this U.K. band released in the early ’70s are spirited collections of Heavy Psych Rock—bringing to mind the often-exotic and creative Krautrock from the same period—and always reminding me of days gone by when I hungrily searched high and low for new music to devour during my early teens and to spring on my buddies as we (hush-hush) passed around the pipe.
Ha! Oooh, the memories…
Anyway, Never Never Land, including stellar tracks such as the powerful punk-like opener “Do It,” “Teenage Rebel,” “Say You Love Me,” and the wonderfully named “Uncle Harry’s Last Freakout,” as well as lighter moments in a wide variety of musical styles, proved a fascinating and solid debut album from this underappreciated act.
